Summary of the Oracle JDK8 MOOC

Oracle has recently released a 3-week JDK 8 Massive Open and Online Course called “Lambdas and Streams”, which discusses the new JDK8 functional features in much more details. It’s a great course and if you’re interested in Java and new JDK8 it can help you get started. This article summarises the course and my previous post and can be used as a quick ref-card …

.NET for Java Devs in a nutshell

REST with Embedded Jetty and Jersey in a Single Jar - Step by Step

Setting up a simple RESTful Java based development environment to play with can be surprisingly difficult. In this tutorial, I will show how to set up a RESTful server (Jetty+Jersey) to start from a standard Java main method. Furthermore, using Maven we’ll package the entire application in a single executable jar file, which can be started from any machine with a Java environment. Finally, we’ll see how to import it into Eclipse, so we can develop and debug there …

C# pitfalls for Java Devs - Overriding [Part 1]

Last week I finally had the time to learn a bit of C#, after a number of years of mostly Java coding. Professional C# developers have described it to me as a “better Java” or “Java with syntactic sugar”, and have claimed that Java programmers should not have problems picking it up. It is true that both languages have a lot in common - i.e. the C-like syntax and single inheritance. However, there are some quite fundamental philosophical differences, which can be mind-boggling for a Java programmer …

CloudSim and CloudSimEx [Part 3] – Delayed VM and Cloudlet actions

Many few CloudSim users have asked how to submit/destroy a VM or a cloudlet with a delay. Unfortunately, this is far from trivial, as it involves launching and handling custom events and ensuring the internal state of the broker is consistent - e.g. all cloudlets of a terminated VM are killed. That’s why CloudSimEx introduced a new broker DatacenterBrokerEX, which among other new features also supports dynamic provisioning and scheduling of VMs and cloudlets …

Starting VM with Custom Image, Security Group and Key-Pair via JClouds

Recently I needed to programatically start EC2 instances from a private AMI (VM Image) as a part of a new provisioning algorithm I was working on. I also wanted to specify my predefined security group and key-pair, so that the new VM is usable right away. Lastly, I wanted to implement it as EC2-independent as possible, so that I can include multiple clouds later on. After struggling a bit with both Apache LibCloud and Apache JClouds I could finally implement this in JClouds …
